Overcompensating a little? Kingston blows minds with a 1 TB flash drive


Need a massive amount of portable storage space? Your options just got far more mind blowing. Today at CES, Kingston has revealed the DataTraveler HyperX Predator, a USB 3.0 flash drive that comes in 512GB and 1TB capacities, making it the largest capacity USB flash memory drive in the world.
